WHY WE LOVE THIS

When you crave a chocolate dessert but don’t want to make an entire cake, this single mug cake is a great option.

This is an easy recipe that anyone can make. The ingredients are whisked in a mug then cooked in a microwave. It’s that simple and the results are amazing.

I have tried many mug cakes and this one is the best so far. It is moist, delicious, and has a perfect texture. Using ingredients you may already have in your pantry, it just needs a microwave-safe mug and five minutes of your time.
